- We have so far enrolled 109 patients as against our target of 150 by this time. We started in April this year so I guess its going slower than expected.

- I am about to wrap up my EGDT project comparing intermittent versus continuous monitoring and clinical outcomes and therapeutic end points in both groups. Hope to analyse the data and send the abstract for the world conference by December

Future Directions:

·        New group project on creating collaborative, multi-site surveys and point prevalence studies, potentially with development of a long-term multi-site data-base to be discussed via virtual meetings over the next few months. Please send ideas/ comments to Amelie and Ericka and we will coordinate a conference call.
